Migrate DIRs stored in content servers via ALE distribution

Hi gurus,

We have a requirement to migrate massive amount of active DIRs with its corresponding originals files onto a new SAP S/HANA environment (client store the files on Content servers – Kpro storage repositories).

Having in mind that the new environment may have new document types configured/merged (so some conversion tasks will be required):

-Would be possible to use ALE distribution (using Message Type DOCMAS or a similar ZDOCMAS) to migrate DIRs with it related information (Object links, status, Original files) to new content servers?

-On the other hand, could be possible to leave the original files on the existing content servers and only migrate DIRs metadata, so the Original files will remind untouched but still be accessible through the new DIRs?

I´m asking this because in the SAP help its mentioned:

You can only distribute originals to other ALE systems that are stored on the following data carriers:

  • SAP database
  • Vault
  • Archive

Only the change pointers are distributed for original application files that are stored in an archive.

There is no mention to content servers, but today found the SAP Note #1027056 where it´s mentioned 2 Ale- Content server scenarios.

Thanks in advance!
